The radio news voice heard at the start of Kim Henkel's Butcher Boys is the same one heard at the start of his original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). Although uncredited in the 1974 film, the voice belongs to Levie Isaacks, who also served as cinematographer for Henkel's Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994). See more »

Never quite real, but so much more fun that expected.
11 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

I threw this on for background noise, and it turned out to be pretty good to the end. It had a ethereal feeling like the Fancy restaurant that Jake, and Oy stumble upon while trying to get back to the Beam. I thought it was just another vampire movie, and I started to tune it out, but I liked the sound that kept drawing me back. The sound of a woman getting away over, and over again. That is a pretty good sound, so I was pulled in, and surprised by what I saw. This movie is what would happen if vampires ran the "Hostile" organization, but one night the kick ass survivor girl from "The Cave" shows up, and does her thing. I really ended up enjoying myself, and would recommend this to anyone who is a Buffy fan, or just likes good action/horror.
